Moreover, the ravaging injury has prevented the American star man to exert his dominance for the Thomas Tuchel team in what would have been a fine season for the American star man under the guidance of the man that nurtured his development at Borussia Dortmund.

However, the Stamford Bridge outfit will be looking to count on his availability throughout the remainder of the European season as the blues are still in the hunt to scoop FA Cup, UEFA Champions League for the second time in a row and will be looking to pounce on any slip up from Manchester City and Liverpool as they looked to catch up with the two monstrous teams that have dominated the Premier League for more than five years now in the ongoing Premier League campaign.

With a Champions League medal on his neck, driving the United State Men’s National Team to their destination in Qatar, despite fizzling out of the contest in the previous edition of the World Cup in Russia 2018, Christian Pulisic has once again justified why he neds to be considered as one of the greatest American soccer players

Though he would need to win the Premier League, which is touted to be the best in the world according to FIFA and UEFA coefficients without such a medal tied around his neck, Pulisic has already been expelled on the path laid by his predecessor while threading the oath of European glory

Jovan Kirovski might have been the first United State soccer player to win the Champions League while playing for the former club of Pulisic in the 1996-98 season, but the current LA Galaxy technical director had little impact to impose his importance on such a prestigious club, while Christian Pulisic made history as the first American to make UEFA Champions League final appearance and winning it and some other medals may have following

Winning Champions League brings a euphoric feeling but nothing come close a player exerts g himself as a driving force that catapults his fatherland to the greatest footballing competition at an unprecedented time

Moreover, taking charge of driving your nation to yet another World Cup after failed attempt in the previous one is not such a leader feat, but setting the template for other American build on in world stage in just about matter on a year and half is a reference to the Disney in the head of the Chelsea’s forward.

While injury might have prevented the American man to further implant himself as one of the best player in Chelsea since the beginning of the season, but Chelsea is fighting for two crucial title in FA Cup and Champions League, while the Stamford Bridge club is patiently bidding their time behind Manchester City and Liverpool on English Premier League table as one of the favorites.

Pulisic will be euphoric to be the main man that driving his club to glory once again as he established with his national team. Definitely, Christian Pulisic is the man of the moment and he has every firepower to transcend his moment to be the one true global superstar that many American want in him.
